Gift Guide 2018-2019

Holiday season is coming up: I know I’m kind of last minute with Christmas gift guide, but I thought, hey, there is still New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, you name it. We all know how overwhelming and stressful it can be even though it totally does not have to. That’s why I decided to take the weight off your shoulders and created this Gift Guide with different sections and subdivisions to make it as creative and as easy as possible for you to shop. Cheers!

Skin Care Routine: Cleansing Essentials

For a while I was using just soap to take my make up off and I confess it was a huge mistake that I made. I believed that because I have oily skin using soap would be a remedy for it but I forgot that I’m not getting any younger and my skin needs to stay moisturized regardless of it being oily.

I did some research and discovered some beauty products that work fantastically for me. They do not dry my skin out, they just gently clean, exfoliate and moisture it. So, here are some of them.

Brutally Honest Hair Care Routine

If you are just as fortunate (attention: sarcasm) as me and you are a lucky possessor of oily hair, please do yourself a huge favor and read this brutally honest hair care routine. A lot of girls complain that they need to wash their hair every day but it still somehow always looks dirty or that the ends are too dry and almost as sharp as knives… Well, I’ve been there and after discovering couple of cool hair care tips, my hair should probably at least write me a thank you note.

French Women Don't Get Fat and Magical Leek

It’s Not a Diet, It’s a Lifestyle

For all those dear fellows who just like me got themselves out of control and gained bunch of weight during holiday season…

I’m not a fan of diets and I never was. Also, I’m not a fan of killing myself at the gym. I strictly believe that being in good shape is easy. All you need to do is just eat healthy, right amount of food at the appropriate time and just don’t sit around the whole day. And you know what? I’m not the only one. About a year ago I came across this really good book “French Women Don’t Get Fat”.

French people are known for their love for food, they simply won’t refuse themselves in these divine pleasures like having a glass/bottle(s) of wine with cheese, baguettes, foie gras, etc. They are also known to have an absolutely opposite attitude towards gyms than Americans. Check out Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik, there is a whole chapter about it and I’m pretty sure nothing changed since the time his book was written. And you know what?  I can’t blame them. We only live once for God sakes!  Let’s just enjoy the good food and not waste our time and money at the gym but still stay in good shape!
